Drunk and driving in the wrong direction

Just beyond the eastern edge of New York City, the Northern State Parkway begins its winding way across Long Island. Earlier this week, a 25-year-old woman trying to elude police went in the wrong direction on the highway in an early-morning chase. She slammed her vehicle head-on into a car driven by a 60-year-old man headed home from work.

For Hispanic construction workers, language barriers can be deadly

In dangerous occupations like the construction industry, it's critical that employers and contractors are able to communicate key safety information to ensure for the physical health and safety of all workers. Alarmingly, a significant percentage of U.S. construction workers are Hispanic immigrants who speak little to no English and are therefore at a greater risk of suffering serious and fatal workplace injuries.

New York City's Department of Buildings revokes general contractor's license

To ensure for the safety of construction workers and members of the general public, construction companies must be licensed and obtain the appropriate building permits. Additionally, construction employers must follow certain safety laws and regulations to ensure that work sites are as safe and hazard-free as possible.

An average of 70 construction workers each year are killed in backover accidents

In a crowded and congested urban environment like New York City, space is in short supply. Consequently, many of the buildings being constructed and renovated are built up rather than out. With tens to hundreds of construction workers, dump trucks, cranes and other construction vehicles and equipment all crowded into a small area; the likelihood of an accident occurring increases exponentially.
